“Never say never!” (old advice from my Mum),

But what if I say that “I’ll never give up!”?

A statement of intent, a promise to self,

An energy, that will be both seen and felt.

“I will honour my ancestors, nourish my soul,

Continue to spread love, focus on my role,

I’ll dispel the darkness, fight for what’s right,

I won’t give up making the most of my life.”


People who only want the best for you, can sometimes give you advice that if taken literally, may end up limiting your true potential! Like, sure, it’s good advice to not rule anything out, but that shouldn’t stop you from confidently stating your intentions to yourself and the Universe.

So, let me break down the mantra featured in the second half of my poem… every family has a less than pure past, with dark secrets and more, but also beautiful and amazing feats. I should honour the bravery of my ancestors, and their ability to survive long enough to add another link in the chain, leading all the way to me.

I owe it to my soul to nourish it and encourage it to grow, by seeking and sharing knowledge that is rooted in freedom and love. By ensuring that you are a beacon of love, it will reflect off of everything around you, and in turn make love more abundant for us all! Focus is very important, our chosen role in this World is too!

Darkness is prevalent, but it can motivate you, as it brings depth to what needs to be done, and compels you to act, so use it as your fuel to be an ambassador of love and light! We have all been blessed with the gift of life, let’s show that we truly deserve to be here, and that we are worthy of more than merely existing!

Love and Respect always,

Following Whispers.

Author: Following Whispers

Hello, I'm Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing for around two decades. I'm a self-professed geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don't take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, plus inspire myself and others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter. I began publishing my writing in 2018 and currently have two books available Worldwide, including my most recent release "Confront The Shadows". I have bared my soul in each and every one of my poems, and I'm confident that you'll get just as much from reading them and relating them, as I did from writing them. Please feel free to look around my site and read the free poems I've shared here, after which, why not grab a book of mine, drop by Instagram, connect with me and say hello!
